All styles - strumming, fingerpicking
I am a professional teacher/studio musician/performer/producer with over 20 years of private teaching experience and a graduate of the University of Miami Studio Music and Jazz program in 2002 specializing in the guitar.
I am available to teach guitar(acoustic, electric, classical) for all levels, ages, and styles(pop to folk, rock to soul, world to classical) in English, Spanish and Japanese.
Other subjects taught include bass guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, harmonium, classical percussion, music theory, composition(all styles from pop to classical), ear training, and studio production/engineering/mixing.
Born in Cali, Colombia on April 1979, I began my musical endeavors studying the piano at the age of 6. Early on I had the opportunit
During 1996-98 I studied jazz guitar at the New World School of the Arts music program under the direction of J.B. Dyas and Dr. Roby George. Upon graduation, I was immediately accepted to the University of Miami jazz guitar program under the direction of Randall Dollahan. It was during this time that I also refined my skills as a classical guitarist and as a composer/arranger. In addition, I began passing my knowledge onto friends and eventually began working as a teacher.
My ability to play almost any genre of music is the fruit of past experience playing with an impressive variety of music groups, including jazz combos, symphony orchestras, Andean world music ensembles, and several rock and pop groups as well. As a studio guitarist I have recorded for various artists including Jaci Velasquez, Carlos Ponce, Alexandre Pires, and Noelia.

Every one of you is unique and there are many possible paths to reach your goals in music.
With my background and music industry experience, I am able to customize my lessons for you so that you can reach your desired goals. We will take some time to find out where your passion lies in music and I will use my experience and knowledge to create a customized lesson-plan that will allow us to focus on reaching your desired goals and at the same time maintain a well rounded music education.
I find this to be key in making the lessons and your practice sessions very enjoyable, fun and laid back - knowing that everything we practice, play and talk about is in line with your goals as a student.
I will also be playing along with you and demonstrating everything that we're working on - music is meant to be shared and played with others and it is important to have that experience of interaction from early on in your lessons.
So whether it's learning to accompany yourself or others, write songs, read music, understand harmony, solo, or just jam out to your favorite songs, you will be well on your way to reaching your goals within 6 months of my lessons.
Look forward to making music with you!

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.
I look forward to working with you!

My name is Cullen Griffin and I teach guitar, bass, and ukulele lessons in various styles of music and to people of all ages. I have been playing music for over 12 years now and have taught lessons throughout the last 6 years.
As someone who pushes themselves daily to further develop their musical skills, I find it very important to not only give back some of the knowledge I've acquired over the years but to also help others learn how to learn effectively and efficiently. Having spent time learning and playing in various settings, from high school jazz bands to jam sessions to recording sessions, I've been able to distill what's essential across different styles and present them in an easily digestible way, allowing for students to see the connections between their favorite music and the underlying elements of music in general.
For each student I tailor a lesson plan built around the student's long term goals. Whether its learning your favorite songs, how to
While guitar and bass are my primary instruments, I also play drums, keys, and ukulele. Constantly striving to revisit the state of being a beginner has allowed me to refine the universal qualities associated with learning in general, music especially. I have played in many different contexts, ranging from big bands and jazz combos to rock bands and recording projects. These different experiences have offered
The world of music is a vast one and the astonishing number of genres and unique artists is truly inspiring. When it comes to learning the particular language of a genre or artist there are specific nuances that create an overall feel when put together. I can not only show you how to practically employ those skills but I can also explain how it works in terms of theory, which can be invaluable when wanting to incorporate certain flavors into your own writing. My goal is to make your goals a priority while making the way there a fun yet efficient journey.
Thank you for your interest!

Hello there! My name is Tyler and I would love to teach you or your child how to play the guitar.
I purchased my first guitar when I was 8 years old and was so excited to learn how to play. I took my first lesson a year later, but was disappointed. I didn't find it fun and therefore didn't want to practice. I wanted to play songs, but all the instructor wanted me to do was learn basic theory. After not making progress... I stopped the lessons. The next year I tried a different instructor, but still did not learn much. The issue for me was playing guitar wasn't fun for me at this point. And that is the most important thing in my opinion if you are going to dedicate yourself to learning to play. A few years later... I discovered punk rock music and online guitar tabs. Suddenly, I was able to look up on my own how to play songs that I was actually excited to play. This changed everything. I started to practice daily. Within a few more years... I could handle almost any basic chord ...
